Special Edition: Amy's Crossing

Today's amazing collection of photos comes from Friend-of-the-Farm and bow hunter extraordinaire Amy Mackey. I had a hard time selecting just ten pics to share. As you'll see below, Amy has found a spot in the woods where a LOT of deer drink and cross the creek. When you know how to 'read' the woods as well as she does,, you don't need critter mix to bring wildlife to your trail cam!

You've seen Luggage Beach before, but take a look at some of the does and bucks that have recently visited the newly-christened Amy's Crossing!

Here's Amy with the long-tined buck she took in 2013.

Upper Route, Section #28, Part 1 of 2

So to shake things up a bit, I did something a little different a few days ago. Instead of pointing the camera down the path, I set it up to catch the visitors to the only downed tree that crosses it. I expected some nice close-up shots of squirrels, and maybe a few birds. I figured I'd attract those squirrels with a line of peanuts from the critter mix.

When I got to the camera today, I discovered it was holding 264 photos! As I started to review the pics at home, I was immediately surprised to learn that all the peanuts were gone in less than one hour, and that, as far as I could tell, squirrels didn't get a single one of them! A couple that I'm posting today are not in great focus, but you'll get the idea ;)

It's going to take some time to whittle down the 260 other photos to just the best.  Tomorrow I'll share pics of the other visitors to this log.

Upper Route, Section #27

A couple more camera moves and we'll be paralleling the creek again, but for now, this camera is still in the pines and the visitors are familiar ones, starting with a squirrel with a mouthful of peanut.

Lower Route, Section #24

The camera is still real close to the ladder stand. Could this be a 10-point buck? Sure hope to get better photos soon!
